I'm browsing through your amazing gallery and I'm trying grasp how you manage to make views and places I think ordinary (I live in Helsinkin myself) look so captivating, lively and just interesting. It's something I'd like to learn to see - the beauty in ordinary or normal. Your compositions are simply great. Any tips? :)

Thank you very much.
I don't have any special tips. Just keep your camera with you as often as possible and take a lot of photos, and by looking at your gallery, I guess you already do that. :)

A postcard I'd buy and then not send because I'd want to keep it for myself ;)

I guess that's another destination to see after Barcelona this winter and revisiting Prague.
Should I have any worries going to Helsinki with English as my only foreign language?

You shouldn't have any worries. Many Finnish people understand and speak english quite well nowadays.

Nice shot! It reminds me of some good times :)
And to think that I was there a few weeks ago...
I'll definitely pay Finland a new visit next year!

Beautiful! London had a major river/canal like this three hundred years ago - the River Fleet, which branched off the Thames where Blackfriars Bridge now stands (there is a wonderful picture by Canaletto of it).

if you ever see my current profile pic, that was actually taken at a camp in Vihti.

Cool! You've visited Vihti all the way from US. :)
I've never been in US.

Vihti was beautiful. I went to a camp there with some friends from Espoo. The air is so much cleaner than where I live in Houston, Texas.

The U.S. is a good place to visit. At least, my Finnish friends had a good time here.

My sister just came back from California and she loved it. :)

oh yeah. California is amazing. If I could afford to I would live there. Much better music scene there too than Texas. Although most of my favorite bands are European, so really Europe's music scene is better anyways.

Wow, this is such a coincidence! My friend, Karlee, actually just arrived in Helsinki. She's going to be living in Turku for a year as an exchange student. This photograph is just gorgeous! It reminds me of the canals in Valencia. The exposure and colors in this is just amazing! Are those real birds on the lamps? Or are they part of the lamp?

sidenote: I'm also an exchange student and I'll be going to Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brasil.

Yes, the birds are real. :) I hope your friend is having a good time in Turku. I have some photos from Turku too [link] :D
(Brasil sounds a great place too.... :) )
